Final episodes of Netflix’s The Crown to feature Burghley House near Stamford





Stamford is back on screens again as Burghley House appears in a top TV series.

For a number of years the stately home has featured in the Netflix series The Crown.

As the final episodes are released today (Thursday, December 14) it means Burghley House’s time on the royal drama has also come to an end.

The new episodes, part two of season six, include the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, the marriage of Charles and Camilla and the beginnings of the relationship between Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

Burghley House near Stamford was bustling with film crews and a few stars in January this year.

A sea of white tents was put up in Burghley Park full to the brim with props, while trailers were stationed in the car park to get the actors ready for scenes.

Two large camera kits were at the front of the house with other equipment scattered around the grounds, and within the courtyard area was a crane standing at the same height as the building with a basket-like structure attached.

Burghley House has been used as a backdrop since 2019 and last season doubled up as Windsor Castle.

Scenes for the final season of The Crown were also shot in Oundle town centre in November 2022.

Cars from the 1990s which were used in filming were parked at the side of the road.
